Generosity in quotes: Rabbi Andy Gordon

“You can give your required donation, but still be an inhospitable individual. A person who performs an act of loving kindness does so because of a generosity of spirit. It is always a gift of the heart. . . A truly generous person reflects upon how his/her donation can change lives. A truly generous person is committed to building connection with others through charity, but also through relationship. Generosity is not about how much you give, but in how your act of giving can build a better world.”

 

Rabbi Andy Gordon, spiritual leader of Bolton Street Synagogue, in Baltimore, MD, from “The generosity of loving kindness” which was published on the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy blog
